The building was manufactured in pre-cast cast iron sections in Germany and shipped out in kit form to be erected at Park Station. It was then demolished and re-erected in Esselen Park, Kempton Park where a section still remains. A portion was moved to Newtown and re-erected above a concrete structure, where it currently stands.
